Tapir lodge was highly organized and our Guide - Diego was excellent. Passionate about the jungle, animals and well versed in the local ecology. The other part that was great was Rahul the cook - being vegetarians - he cooked up some of the best meals we have had - that too in the middle of the jungle. We were well taken care off, our trip was planned to explore all aspects of the Amazon and we had the luck to see many many animals - including pink river dolphins. There are a lot of choices, however Tapir lodge excelled in its guide, food, location and catering to all our need and expectations. The best part for our kids was the swim in the lagoon, while for the adults it was the canoe ride in torrential rain.
Would suggest you travel to amazon in June - Oct during the rainy season as this is when the animals, trees are at their best. It gives you an immense appreciation for the jungle and our responsibility for the planet.
